12 Years A Slave Review

Oh my god!!  This is the WORST Christmas movie ever!  For one, it’s not about Christmas, it’s about slavery. Which, in retrospect, I should have gathered from the title. Seriously, though. This is the most brutal, hard-to-watch, eye-opening film of the year. Every single person ever should watch. I loved it, in that way that you love a movie and hope to never, ever, ever see it again. 

The Way, Way Back Review

The Way, Way Back... is way way awesome!

Groundbreaking? Not exactly, but there’s a reason that certain stories are well-trodden: Because we want to see them again and again. Meatballs is one of my favorite movies. Vintage Bill Murray from 1979. The Way, Way Back is basically the same story: Awkward boy, who nobody appreciates, comes-of-age one summer when he meets the coolest guy in the world, who inexplicably sees something great in him, and brings it out.
